    Door Knob extenders

    Can someone tell me what those devices are called that help people with limited finger movement turn door knobs easier?

    Several different types if you don't just want to change out the door knob to a lever type (which looks the nicest):

    These add just an easy grip surface:

    These add a lever to the existing door knob:

    Lots of different manufacturers...sometimes you can just find them at Home Depot.

      Does anyone have ideas for anything that would turn the doorknob from further away, extend into the room rather than sideways? The approach to my doorway is very tight, with stuff on either side, so I don't have room to turn sideways. Dying needlessly in a fire because I can't open my door seems an exceptionally wasteful way to go.

        Can you afford an electronic door opener?? Might be the best for you. You can get them with wireless control buttons you can keep on your wheelchair.

        Here are a few:

          What about this? These look like they have a different purpose (to get past blinds) but I think they would work.

            Then there is this, for thick doors. You would need someone handy (and have a thin door already). imagine taking the doorknob out, putting a thick square of wood on the door where the knob goes, drill the hole, an reinstall on this new "thick" door. It might be tricky to get the mechanism in the right spot, but I think it would be doable.
